Relative the rest of the Giants' anemic offense, Torres has the ability to walk and steal bases. He also plays an above-average center field. It would make sense to keep Torres at the top of the order as the Giants fight for a playoff spot...
But what about Gary Brown?
The 22-year-old is currently putting up a monster season for San Jose, hitting .334 with 49 stolen bases. Brown's also sporting a .404 OBP. And for good measure, he's also got 12 jacks to his name -- enough for second-most on the team.
We know, we know. We hear you, critics: He's young; it's his first year of professional baseball; he's unproven.
But considering where we're at -- four games back of Arizona as of Sunday night -- why not? When rosters expand later this week, let's hope Gary Brown can become the type of catalyst this offense needs.
